Silicon Valley Reads
Silicon Valley Reads is a community engagement program that features books and an annual theme to bring people together by providing more than 100 free, public events each year in February and March. Events for all ages include author talks, book clubs, art/music events, community activities, arts and crafts, movies, and creative events or activities based on the theme each year.
Silicon Valley Reads is back in 2024 with a renewed commitment to foster collaboration and create awareness around the importance of sustainability. Our theme is "A Greener Tomorrow Starts Today". To ensure a thriving world for future generations, we're committed to fostering meaningful conversations and offering practical ideas for individuals to take action towards sustainability.
Visit our Calendar of Events page to sign up for free programs for all ages from now throughout March.
If you missed our kickoff event, we have posted this outstanding panel discussion. The panel includes the authors of One Green Thing, Heather White and The Light Pirate, Lily Brooks-Dalton along with contributors to All We Can Save: Alexandria Villasenor and Favianna Rodriguez. Damian Trujillo from NBC news moderates the conversation.
We have carefully selected three books that encapsulate the spirit of our theme and encourage meaningful community conversations:
Featured Books for Adults
All We Can Save
One Green Thing
The Light Pirate
Featured Companion Books for Teens/Children
To Change a Planet (Pre-K - 1st)
